2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Update: this is not a limited release, it’s brewed year around as far I can tell.
Pours a rather dark amber with a solid sheet of light yellow foam. Ruddy. Smells like grass, grapefruit, resin, mint and sweet crystal malts. Flavor is very balanced, more so than I would prefer in a DIPA. Malts up front with dry bitterness and some grapefruit rind. A bit of oxidation on the malts. Medium on full bodied with moderately hi carb to boot. This is a below average beer. I’ve got a couple friends to I recall really digging this beer, but I can’t really subscribe. Not likely to reinvest here.

On tap. Pours a clear ruby red-orange with a thick off white head. Aroma of hop oils, light fruits, caramel malt. Flavor of grassy hops, caramel, hop oils, earthy hops. Hoppy but not in-your-face, mellow, drinkable.

Bomber. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A big sweet malty nose with fruity hops. The flavor is great: caramel, light bitterness, oranges, lemons, finishes with more bitter lemon and caramel. Very nice fullfiling IPA.

Cloudy orange in appearance with a pale white head. Orange and grapefruit breaks through the hops, which is only moderate for an IPA. Hence, it is surprisingly drinkable. Not much of an aroma.

It smells like "Spaghetti-O’s". But it actually tastes WAY better than it smells. It’s not bad, considering I bought it solely based on the adorability of the label.
